A New Champion Approaches: Akali, the Fist of Shadow
5 Attachment(s)
There exists an ancient order originating in the Ionian Isles dedicated to the preservation of balance. Order, chaos, light, darkness - all things must exist in perfect harmony for such is the way of the universe. This order is known as the Kinkou and it employs a triumvirate of shadow warriors to uphold its causes in the world. Akali is one of these shadow warriors, entrusted with the sacred duty of Pruning the Tree - eliminating those who threaten the equilibrium of Valoran.

A prodigious martial artist, Akali began training with her mother as soon as she could make a fist. Her mother's discipline was relentless and unforgiving, but predicated on the fundamental principle: "We do that which must be done." When the Kinkou inducted her into the order at the age of fourteen, she could slice a dangling chain with a chop of her hand. There was no question she would succeed her mother as the Fist of Shadow. She has had to do much in this role which others might find morally questionable, but to her it is in service of her mother's inviolable doctrine. She now works with her fellows Shen and Kennen to enforce the balance of Valoran. This hallowed pursuit has unsurprisingly led the triumvirate to the Fields of Justice.

The Fist of Shadow strikes from the cover of death itself. Do not impede the balance.

Mark of the Assassin: Akali throws her kama at an enemy, dealing damage and marking her target for several seconds. If she hits a marked target, the mark will deal additional damage.

Twilight Shroud: Akali throws down a smoke bomb at a target area. While in the area, Akali becomes stealthed. Performing an action breaks stealth for a second. Enemies in the area have reduced movement speed and attack speed.

Crescent Slash: Akali hits all units around her for damage scaling off both her attack damage and ability power.

Shadow Dance (ultimate): Akali moves through shadows to quickly strike her target, dealing damage and consuming an Essence of Shadow charge. Akali recharges Essence of Shadow charges periodically, max 3 stacks.

Twin Disciplines (passive):
  • Discipline of Might - Upon obtaining 20 ability power, Akali's melee attacks deal additional magic damage. The bonus magic damage is increased for every 5 ability power gained afterwards.
  • Discipline of Force - Upon obtaining 10 attack damage, Akali gains spell vamp. She gains additional spell vamp for every 20 attack damage gained afterwards.

Sounds wicked :)

Is she gonna cost 6300 IP?

Personally I think her Twilight Shroud should limit whoever is in the cloud's Field of Vision, reduces Movement Speed, and reduces Dodge Chance instead of what it does now.

It would make more sense because it's a cloud of smoke, why would you be able to see everything else inside but not her? Shortening the Field of Vision would be ideal.

Regardless, I can't wait to try this champion out in live! :)

She looks a bit tame for a killer, but she definitely sounds fun to play.

Sounds like an awesome champ but now theres going to be an abundance of 3 ninja teams on TT lol

Great Champ so far, I like her style.

....just please make her 1350 as we already have a 6300 ninja and a 3150 ninja.
